      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

The weekend of the 26th-27th of October saw over 120
anarchists and other libertarian activists converge on
Belfast in a place called Giro's, which is a spacious
social centre that is home to the Belfast Youth and
Community Group (BYCG). The centre proved to be
the perfect surroundings for the gathering, with its café,
office space, library and hall making it entirely
conducive to political and social interaction, i.e. eating
together, getting drunk and shouting about politics.

But aside from that, many concrete plans and ideas
emerged from the many workshops during the two days,
including the formation of a grassroots network against the
war, based on regional structures, the possible staging of
Reclaim The Streets Belfast, and the suggestion to hold the
next People's Global Action conference in Ireland. In fact
the only problem that seemed to occur was that of two or
more interesting workshops coinciding and the sheer lack of
time to attend everything.

A special word of thanks has to go out to the Belfast crew
for all their hard work and the organisation of this, the third
Grassroots Gathering. It was a roaring success thanks to
their hospitality and meticulous attention to detail!

The next Grassroots Gathering will take place in Limerick
on Patrick's Day weekend in 2003. In the meantime, stay
tuned for details on local actions and come to Shannon
Warport to protest on the 8th of December!
